If the singer wins the National Selection, she will represent Ukraine at the Eurovision Song Contest with the song, dedicated to all the women who are waiting for their loved ones from the war.

"Dedicated to women who, with the strength of their light and support, help Ukrainian soldiers endure the hardships of war and defend their country," reads the description of the video, which premiered on YouTube on Jan. 15.

INGRET plans to raise about $130,000 (UAH 5 million) for Ukrainian defenders. The video features footage of the military and military equipment on the battlefield, while the singer herself appears wearing a vyshyvanka, a traditional Ukrainian embroidered shirt, and a ribbon in her hair.
